Any child age birth to 21 with any degree of combined vision and hearing loss qualifies for services.  Even children with a mild vision and hearing loss qualify for services, as the impact of a combined loss is greater than one would think, since neither sensory channel is able to fully compensate for the loss in the other sense.
